Some type of worms...

What are these? Are they harmful? I see them on the glass but not sure if they are elsewhere.

Really tiny, about 1mm long or so.

Flatworms, but not the invasive take-over-your-tank kind. They're harmless and will just cruise around your glass eating algae

flatworms, some can reproduce and take over your tank. they live off of detritus and excess nutrients. Sometimes they can use up all the excess and just die off. I had some in my old 65 gallon tank and could not for the life of me seem to get rid of them. Some six line wrasses eat them so thats a potential resolution to your problem.
